Wrestling programs for hyperactive children also have been quite successful. In wrestling, the coach usually teaches the athlete one-on-one, which enhances listening and works better than group teaching. As in swimming and soccer, endurance and stamina are improved, as is strength of all muscle groups.
Other activities in which hyperactive children have been particularly successful are diving, weight lifting, track and field, gymnastics, and, in some cases, tennis and golf. Tennis and golf, however, are difficult to learn and often end in frustration, which may bring out more of the attention deficit symptoms. Weight lifting is a fairly explosive sport which does not require sustained concentration, but it should be done under the guidance of a coach and should be reserved for children who are physically mature enough to avoid injury.
